Woods to play Memorial in likely final US Open tune-up

Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning at Quail Hollow

Woods closed The Players Championship with a 69 and had peers taking notice.

"I am pleased that the Memorial Tournament once again is drawing a wonderful field", Nicklaus said in a release.

Woods has never competed in the Memphis-based St. Jude Classic, played a week before the US Open, the May 31-June 3 Memorial is expected to be his final stop ahead of the year's second major.

Tournament officials announced the pairing Wednesday.

Five-time champion Tiger Woods will play in the Memorial Tournament in OH for what is likely to be his final event before next month's US Open. It is also where he shot his highest score as a pro, an 85 during the third round of the 2015 tournament, his last appearance. It will nearly certainly be his final tournament before the U.S. Open June 14-17 at Shinnecock Hills. World No. 1 Justin Thomas, Masters champion Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and defending champion Jason Dufner are confirmed for the Golden Bear's marquee event.

In his latest comeback, Woods has posted four top-12 finishes in his last six events, and ranks eighth in strokes gained on tour. He's won the tournament five times (1999-2001, 2009 and 2012).

At the Players, Woods opened with scores of 72-71 to barely make the cut, then shot 65-69 on the weekend, briefly pulling within 4 shots of eventual victor Webb Simpson on the back nine before dropping back. Jason Dufner won it a year ago.
